Allright guys i have a 94 GSR 2 door, i just bought yesterday. I got the new Pioneer AVH P6400CD 6.5 inch wide screen TV. I have everything wired, but how would i go about mounting it. I have it chilling in the bottom of the double din, but it sticks out like 8 inches so the screen doesnt hit the ac/defroster buttons. How do i go about doing this. Im insuring and registering car tomorrow so i need to do it tonight. By the way its a single din. Thanks a lot

i got the same issue
what we did was move put it in the location where your cig lighter and ashtray up
it requires modifying the areas all around that area and its not mounted tight so you gotta use metal braces to hold it in
it took us a while
i dont have my digicam or i would show you pics
by the way im taking mines out (i got the dvd version) cuz its to much of a pain in the ass and i worry about it all the time

just because someone has a deck like this (as i do) doesnt mean they are driving down the road watching TV....

these decks are usually also packed with loads of features non-movie related and the extra display is great to be able to see volume, track, title name, etc.....

so i wouldn't jump to such negative conclusions, we are here to help out each other, no just throw in a useless 2 cents that has nothing to do with the question at hand

Hey airon, how did it come out. I was looking into maodifing that part. It fit all the way in and the screen pops out with no problem? My main concern is that it looks clean. Im guessing u cut the tabs where the screws would be so it would slide in? If you could give me some more detailed info id appreciate it.

In my opinion, if you just got the screen then it's much easier to mount b/c you could use a goose neck or customize it anywhere you want. I still wish i got a TV but like MD says "ALL GO, F UCK SHOW".

I need some ideas how to mount a in-dash lcd screen, I have read up on it, and I think it will work with a little coersion by mounting it where my head unit is now (in the stock location) and putting my head unit below. My only question is will it clear the temperature controls? I am going to be borrowing it from a friend who got a new 4-Runner Limited and isn't putting it in for awhile. It's a Pioneer and I think it's a 7".

Any help will be appreciated.

good idea morningz, also do those kick panels ever get in the way.
by the way, ive heard lcd displays should be keep at a good temp, so if its cold keeping them warm is a good idea, so if they were to cover the vents it wouldnt be a totally bead idea, right? also all you have to do to get to your controls is just angle it down a bit then put it back up.

I dont have any pics on my computer of the unit closed. The double din opening is closed off with black plexiglass. I rarely leave it closed since it looks rather plain. If you wanted to be real stealth you could leave your OEM radio and pocket in and still have the tv below. You would just have to figure out a way to cover your aftermarket Tv when closed.

The kicks are not really an issue depending on how you use your clutch. I use just the upper part of my foot to clutch, not my whole foot. Its really not as bad as it sounds. I could have set them back farther but the imaging would have suffered. Also, I had a hard time moving the ECU on the passenger side far enough back.

You really do not need to regulate the temp on your LCD in dash. They are very dull when cold but when the unit warms up the lcd is displayed correctly. I would not recommend direct heat on your electronics!

isnt your tv hidden when closed/off, you shouldnt be able to see anything when it closes right?? why do you leave it up all the time- i would e afraid of theft.

The monitor is hidden when it is closed and the unit looks just like a radio with a display. The pic is below. It is generally closed when the car is outside in a parking lot. It does have a detachable face too. My car is garage kept so if its in the garage I usually just leave it open. I am not too concerned with theft. Everything is fully insured. If something were to happen then it would just give me a reason to start again. But, yes it would be inconvient at first. This is a pic of what it looks like closed:

What are the steps for installing a display like that in the area you have it in? can you retro-fit the ashtry and cig lighter back if you wanted to take it out? I can see that even if I put the display in the bottom din lovation, it wont clear the temp controls. Any install pics?

Thanks.

Unfortuanetly, I lost a lot of digital pics of my install due to a virus. The dash pics were included in the loss.

Well, I know that I cannot put my ash/cig lighter back in since I did some cutting behind the dash. Or maybe I can, I dont remember, all I knew at the time is there was no other way. I am actually redoing that area in a week or so. It will be all fiberglass an will look better than now. When the new panel is made there will be more cutting and no turning back to fit the new panel. Did I mention what my favorite tool was???? Its a:
